Active by Nature is offering visitors to Canmore & Kananaskis three special outdoor events over the Christmas holiday period, listed below.

Please note:  Active by Nature is participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program requiring:

DEC 23rd, 7:00 pm - 9:00 ish:  Spring Creek Christmas Display & New Moon Walk: Enjoy the beautiful Candy Cane Lane & local's favourite, the Three Sisters Taxi Christmas display starting outside the Malcolm Hotel. Arrive early and enjoy the wonderful Festival of Trees (face mask required) on the ground floor of the Malcolm Hotel Lobby.  We will stride around Spring Creek, Nordic walking (poles provided) then hop in our vehicles and drive a short distance to a very different location, to experience the dark and if the sky is clear, the brilliant natural display of stars.  If conditions warrant it, ice cleats will be provided to put on over your boots. Cost: $45.00 per person plus taxes.  BOOK HERE.


DEC 27th, 8:30 am - 10:00 ish:  Sunrise Walk & Spur Line Art Walk:  This is the about the latest time of day in the year for getting out to enjoy the sunrise.  Of course, there is absolutely no guarantee we will see it as there could be too much cloud cover.  But perhaps we will be lucky!  It will be a great walk anyway as we climb to a viewpoint above Canmore and take in the beautiful art walk along Canmore's Spur Line Trail.  Nordic walking poles provided and also ice cleats, if conditions warrant it. Cost: $45.00 per person plus taxes.  BOOK HERE.

Jan 1st, 9:00 am - 11:00 am: Troll Falls New Year's Day Hike:   Forget partying on New Year's Eve or staying up to watch what is on TV until midnight. Go to be early and start 2022 in an adventurous way with an Active by Nature hike to Troll Falls.  Betcha it will be quiet on the trail..... LOL!  This is a spectacular winter hike, usually quite busy.  We will visit a number of frozen waterfalls, one you can actually walk behind.  Icers and poles provided.  Bring your own sense of adventure!  Cost: $59.99 plus taxes.  BOOK HERE.

What to wear & bring (Spring, Summer, Fall):

  1. Wear comfy casual clothes.
  2. Bring a warm extra layer & rain jacket, just in case.
  3. Running shoes are fine while light trail or hiking shoes provide even more support and are ideal.
  4. Please no flip-flops or sandals.
  5. Leave purses at home. A small backpack is a great bring-along.
  6. Don't forget your water, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, insect repellent and your camera.

What to wear & bring (Winter):

  1. Wear a long sleeve t-shirt/thermal underwear top plus 1 or 2 layers (i.e.: light fleece top, heavier fleece top) & a wind/waterproof shell. Heavy winter parkas and snow pants are usually too warm.
  2. Wear winter boots or lined hiking boots. Icers, which go over your footwear to prevent slipping, are provided when necessary.
  3. Leave purses at home. A small backpack is a great bring-along.
  4. Bring water, gloves/mitts, a hat/headband, scarf/buff/neck warmer, tissues/handkerchief, sunglasses and don't forget your camera!

Your Health & Physical Activity Readiness:

We ask guests who are experiencing cold symptoms and symptoms of COVID-19 to stay home and practice self-isolation under the direction of the appropriate governing body. For almost everyone, the benefits of physical activity far outweigh any risks. For some individuals, special advice from a Qualified Exercise or health care provider is advisable before becoming more active. This questionnaire is intended for all ages – to help move you along the path to becoming more physically active.

Please review this Questionnaire if you have concerns about your health or fitness level for participating in Nordic walking.

Full refunds are given if a cancellation is received 24 hours or more prior to the clinic or tour date. No refunds are given with less than 24 hours notice. Clinics/tours go rain or shine. If the weather is extreme, then it may be cancelled with a full refund given.
